Went out to eat/drink last night, up 3 pounds of water. Will take a couple days to whoosh. Clean food today.
Didn't have time to work out today, I'm moving to a larger apartment on the third floor in a couple of weeks, will be painting all afternoon tomorrow with my cousin - that'll have to be my workout!!! LOL
My feet will be flared up for the rest of the week. Yikes!
Groan....I hate moving!

Decided to get my badger butt in gear and did some upper body with dumb bells and leg raises with ankle weights...

Going to be busy tomorrow, meeting my brother in town at 9am to drop off his car, will drive him back to Illinois, do a load of laundry or visit my dad, then back to St. Louis at noon to meet my cousin to paint the apartment - that'll take a good part of the day. Will have to find time to go to the housing authority to drop off paperwork and talk to a caseworker about a new tenant from the Veteran's administration...

Stressful week, trying to get my apartment upstairs ready to move into. Cousin came over and painted 3 days, the last day he didn't put down drop cloths in the kitchen and got overspray on the linoleum. I have tendonitus in my hand so I put a green scrubbie under my foot and scrubbed the floor for a half hour. Ha, now I can hardly bend my knee, seems it caused some tendonitus reaction in one of my two bad knees. Only slept 4 hours the past 3 nights. Having doubts about moving up to the third floor with all my joint problems but the guy that lives above me is constantly bothering me with creaking floor boards above my bedroom in the middle of the night. Plus, the apartment on the third floow is so much more roomy, can even fit a dining room set that I can't down here.
My cousin said he could rig a pully system off the back porch so I can hoist laundry/groceries upstairs and save my knees and feet. Yikes! Been waiting for the carpet guy for two days (why don't these people call when they aren't coming? I need to be there to make sure he nails down the squeaky floor boards so I don't disturb the people below me - I'm soooo considerate....lol)...anyway, lack of sleep is making this process so much more stressful...haven't been a good honey badger, sorry Amber! Don't know what I weighed the past two days...I'm sure it's up.
Friend Bob is supposed to help with small stuff this weekend, and Bryan's daughters and two friends will be helping also...but it all depends on my knee....I need to stay away from the steps until this inflammation goes down, or I'm afraid I'll be stuck with another chronic problem....
Big move is a week from Saturday....

This week, my neurosis are killing me..and anyone within a 10 foot radius of me

Hey sweetie!

You have been super busy! I will have to look and see if my journal is still active. I wish I lived by you so I could help you move. The bigger apartment sounds nice. I know I need my space, and I hate listening to people above me too! I'm spoiled now that I live in my Grandmother's old home. No neighbors and I have the biggest house I've lived in!

So much you are dealing with...Take some deep breaths girl. Things will work out. The stress isn't good for you. Try to grab a min. or 2 to relax.

and all the aches...

Hoping things improve soon sweetie

Oh what I would give to be able to work out like you do!!! I've been grieving the "loss of my body" for 15 years! And all those people that sit on their asses! What I would trade to have their joints!!!! I'm a nature nut, and haven't been able to hike in years. Guess I should be grateful that I can move at least!!!
food is abysmal, but I'm committing to do meat tomorrow and the rest of the week. My loose jeans are snug. Oh NO!!!!!

I know it is so important to keep moving to spare our joints for sure, I knew that was what was killing me with the weight, I was lucky with the cholesterol and that stuff but after the two knee surgeries I said that is it!!!!

Stick with your meats and eggs it will come back off!!!

Oh ladies, did horrible over the weekend with carbage, pms, pain, conflict with my maintenance man (best friend) over apartment issues, moving, did I say Pain? LOL
Anyway was up to 155.8 again, but haven't weighed the last 3 low carb days. Had only 3 hours of sleep last night, been up since 4am..and rational thought and emotions has been out the door.
Trying to use up food so there is less to pack. Made a low carb "hash" with sausage, onion and daikon radish! Yum!
Just think by Sunday this moving stress will be ova!!!
Day three low carb (again)...although this is some progress, wouldn't have normally come up from carbage damage so quickly...in the past..



Oh yea, had some wild animal excitement this afternoon. Heard this scratching scurrying noise all morning, too large to be a mouse, figured it was a trapped squirrel.
Anyway I heard it scratching at the bottom of my dishwasher, Charlie pulled out the panel and a starling flew out. I waved it outside with a towel. Charlie didn't think anything was going to come out and he had planned to scare me with a glove after he released the panel. We were both surprised! I had a pest control company come out and they think the bird got in from a kitchen fan vent. There are six on the building and none of them are screened.

Been busy unpacking and trying to get 3 apartments ready to rent for the 1st. Food was awesome the past week, weighed 150 this morn (lost 3 pounds this week), that will be my honey badger weight for the week. Spending whatever down time playing words with friends on Facebook instead of ....snacking...LOL
Went out to Tuckers for my aunts 70th birthday party and partook of wine and cake tonight, so it'll take a couple of days to get the water weight back off. There were 25 of us that attended, it was so good to see all the family together! Did the upper body machines twice in the past 4 days, will go back tomorrow, knee is still bothering me so I'm laying off the lower body machines for now. Still trying to kick the cigs!!

It's been crazy. My maintenance man (and friend) was fired last week, just before I had to get 3 apartments ready to rent. This is the first time I've had to do this since becoming manager in September. So with my bad knees, I've been running up and down 3 flights of stairs to the different apartments, cleaning, touch up painting, running to lowes/home depot multiple times for supplies, meeting with inspectors, etc. A couple three days ago I was going to lowes to get blinds and I hit this truck in front of me - his trailer hitch. He was stopped at an intersection and looked to be pulling out. I came from behind and looked down a split second and ran into him. About 3 thousand damage to my car, nothing to his. I was only going about 10/15 miles and hour? Think I'm still in shock. Can't believe the damage. I have a 1500 deductible, just took it to an approved AAA shop because I didn't want to hassle with going to someplace non approved. I've been so exhausted. The night before last I slept from 2am to 4, got up and started working on apartments til I dropped last night. Slept last night for 12 hours!!!! I've exhausted myself. Weighed 148.5 this morn, probably from all the stair climbing. LOL
What's bad is I booked a weekend vacation package for the first weekend in March. All my tummy tuck online support women I've known for almost 4 years are meeting in Las Vegas for our first get together (Weve got a private facebook group called Flatlands). A week ago Saturday I flipped a coin at midnight, staring at the booking screen on my laptop computer. Knowing I couldn't really afford it, but desperately needing a vacation after all these years....heads was it, and I waited an additional 20 minutes before I had the balls to put it on my credit card. Too bad it couldn't be during Ambers wedding, I could have killed two meetings with one stone. LOL
Anyway, I'd lose half my money if the cancel the flight, hotel now....
With 1500 looming for my car in three weeks.....this sucks...big.
But I'm surprisingly not stressed over it, it is what it is....thank god for credit cards.
I've got two part time jobs but don't get paid for either (free apartment for managing and free adjustments from the chiro for being a diet counselor for his new Ideal Protein program) I'm still living on unemployment....I got the extension til the last week in April...

Wow! Had some young girl hit mine years ago, and she put a big hole in her car. No visible damage to mine at the time,but later realized it must have twisted something because things just did't work the same after that. Doors,etc. SUV I drive now has one, and had a couple hits on it. No damage to mine. Cracked a few shins on them here too!

The big thing is you are ok.

Hoping the money sit works out soon for you

Weighed 149 this morn. I'll take it! Almost done with the apartment readying! Yippee. Been diligently watching my food, not caving to stress eating this weekend. Another nice day in St. Louis. We are all hoping for an early spring! With all the work I've done on the apartments I should get paid 1/3 of my car damage deductible. Happy Dancing!
Going to hit club fitness, do the upper body machines and get a rot chix for dinner.
Thinking about putting my toe back in the dating waters....

Never made it to the gym, put an ad up on a dating site. Pronto! LOL
talked to J on the phone for an hour while parked in front of Lowes. Sounds really nice, partner in his own business (remember B, didn't have a job half of the time I knew him...oy the stress of all that) down to earth. We are supposed to meet midweek for coffee, if he calls back. LOL
